As well as the above, I wanted to draw blog readers’ attention to a new online local resource, E7 magazine. It’s only recently been launched, but is already our own virtual treasure trove: a one-stop shop for information about local places to go, events, news and more. You can find it online, or like on facebook or follow on twitter for updates.
